Bruce Happy With Win Over Royals
Royals went out of the FA Cup tonight at St Andrews after going down to Birmingham City.
Despite hitting the woodwork twice, Reading lost to a Blues side who produced goals from Mickael Forssell and Julian Gray, either side of an equaliser from Steve Hunt.
Birmingham’s reward will be a trip to the Britannia Stadium to face Stoke in the next round and their manager Steve Bruce was delighted to get the game won.
He said: 'I'm delighted for the young lads, it was a horrible night and the ball was swerving all over the place in atrocious conditions.
'It takes a little bit of time to settle, a few of them haven't played at this level.
'I thought the reaction was terrific after Reading equalised.'
